Here at Podengo we are committed to making sure that our website is accessible to everyone, regardless of what technology is being used to access it. If you are having any problems, or you have any comments or questions, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch using the contact details which are at the bottom of every page.
We have used consistent global navigation links throughout the site, and there is a 'skip-to-content' link on each page to allow users of assistive technologies (such as screen readers) to easily navigate to the page content.
Markup and headings
Our website has been built using valid, standards-compliant HTML5 and CSS. The content has been structured logically, with correct and consistent use of headings, so that assistive technology users can easily navigate both the site and the page content.
Screen reader users
Modern screen readers use a common set of commands allowing you to navigate through a page using the headings:
- h - cycle through the headings
- Shift + h - cycle backwards through the headings
- 1 - 6 - move to the next heading of the same level (for example, 1 will move you to the next level 1 heading, 2 will move you to the next level 2 heading)
- Shift + 1 - 6 - as above but moving through each heading backwards
- Insert + F6 - provide a list of all headings on a page.
If you are browsing the site using Opera you can cycle through the headings using these commands:
- s - cycle through the headings
- w - cycle backwards through the headings.
We are working towards supporting the A-grade browsers as recommended by the Browser Test Baseline. This means that visitors using these browsers should receive a consistent, usable experience. We are still in the process of testing against this baseline, so you may experience some inconsistencies until testing has been completed.
There are no significant accessibiity barriers on the website, but testing is still in progress so there may be some issues which we are not aware of at the moment. If you find any problems please let us know and we will fix them as soon as possible.
Podengo supports the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. The current version of our website has recently been launched, and accessibility testing is still in progress. When it has been completed this page will be updated with information about what level we have met.
The information on this page is specific to the Podengo website. If you would like more information or help with web accessibility, we recommend the BBC's My Web, My Way website.
